k.d. Lang Concert

k.d. Lang’s Ingénue 25th Anniversary Concert at the Eastlink Centre, P.E.I.

k.d. Lang was at the packed Eastlink Centre last Friday night and if you weren’t there, you missed an incredible concert. This barefooted lady has sung her heart out for over 25 years.

Caroline Savoie, an Acadian from New Brunswick opened the night with a beautiful set of French songs featuring her robust voice and soulful guitar.

The backing musicians/singers for k.d. were top notch. The sound system was the best I have heard in a few years. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house – the clarity of her voice and music was superb as well as the stage set. She sang a few of my favourites, Miss Chatelaine, plus the incomparable Hallelujah, nobody sings it better!

PEI Color Run in Charlottetown

pei color runThe famous Color Run™ finally arrived in Prince Edward Island! On July 29th, 2017, the PEI Color Run took place in Charlottetown!

It takes place in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Africa and the United Arab Emirates.

The Eastlink Centre was the ticketing agent for this race and Sandpiper Studios captured some of the excitement.
